A Fresh & Healthy Quinoa Salad Recipe

Today, we’re bringing you a fresh & healthy quinoa salad recipe that anyone can master. Quinoa is versatile and is great for your health, plus, you can make it savoury or sweet since the quinoa absorbs the liquid that you cook it with. For this recipe, we suggest using orange juice (instead of water) to make it a bit sweeter. If you love quinoa, make sure to check out our Quinoa Breakfast Bites.
